Couldn't agree more.  I've had mopup guys come in and pitch the 9th in a tie game (over Long A guys).  I've complained to admin over and over.

What fantasy league were you playing in in the early 2000s that included SLG?  I could never get anybody to play leagues that used OBP or SLG.
hmm, could have been any number of places (where I played fantasy baseball; not many of them would have had the ability to do SLG). Most lost to history now, of course. Even ESPN only shows me back to 2003, and then I didn't do baseball any more.

In 2005, I did one on Yahoo that included a lot of categories outside the standard 5x5. I think this was a different site, though. Same kind of people ... AVG/SB/HR gets boring.

I agree.  In fact, I think we should re-play all of the leagues from the very beginning!

After I make a few little tweaks to my rosters.....

I haven't had a SCHWARZE or a MAUCH all season long.  Something tells me that the MAUCH will be making an appearance well before the SCHWARZE...

Including my non-WISC teams, in the pm cycle, I went 0-8. In the pm2, I flipped it around and went 8-0. Got anything for whiplash, doc?

Here's a fun fact.  At this point in the season, ALL SIX OF MY TEAMS are below their Pythagorean records.  In fact, the average underperformance is a full 78 percentage points behind the Pythagorean win %, or roughly 2.73 games behind where they "should be".

In a tournament of 96 players, one or two owners could be expected to have all six teams underperforming.  And this year... it's me.

All 6 of my teams are at or below their Pythagorean records still, but at least they are pulling closer.  Glad to see that a team that you thought would be good turn it around.

Look at our host, schwarze, one game back of the top spot at the halfway point.

Did anyone else notice an improvement in stamina after 81 games?  All of my teams' had less fatigue after the pm2 games.  After nearly 1,000 teams you would think I would have noticed something like that before.  Are my improvement an anomaly or does WIS give a little bump after the All Star break (kind of a day or 2 off)?
